Find out About the Past…
Heritage Open Days is England’s largest festival of heritage and culture.
Across the country, thousands of heritage venues take part. They open their doors and provide a variety of heritage events free of charge. In September every year, buildings of every age, style and function throw open their doors, free of charge. It’s the perfect opportunity to embrace the region’s diverse heritage. Discover hidden histories and explore unique architectural gems.
Fabulous buildings are open to everyone, free of charge. They’re normally either closed to the public or charge for admission. The knowledge of local guides brings them to life as they take you back through their past. Anyone with an interest in Blackpool and its history is welcome to come along. It’s a great weekend for residents to get to know all about the town in which they live.
This terrific programme is only made possible with the support of many organisations and individuals who give up their time to plan and deliver the events, many of who are volunteers. Thanks to all of them.
